Closing Out an Interesting Trading Week

Bearish Retail Targets Fall Despite General Uptrend:

With the state of the markets this week, we had remained primarily focused on bearish signals through to yesterday morning’s report. Even as stocks put forward an impressive rebound on Thursday, the majority of our tracked plays still produced.

Two of our three designated potential targets bucked the trend of the day, both giants in the retail space. The KSS Weekly $58-56.50 Puts and the RL Weekly $130-125 Puts logged very respectable intraday upswings, with four out of those six contract sets recording double-bag gains or better.

Here were those trend-bucking moves, and total potential daily gains for traders: 

KSS Weekly $58-56.50 Puts
3.00-5.54 (+85%)
$57.50: 2.40-4.00 (+66%)
$57: 1.70-4.22 (+148%)
$56.50: 1.30-3.65 (+181%)

RL Weekly $130-125 Puts
4.10-10.85 (+165%)
$125: 1.45-6.50 (+348%)

Fresh Options Ideas:

We’re going to flip back over to the other side of the fence this morning and designate some bullish options ideas for today. The scenario with the above mentioned short plays was the exception, not the rule. The typical key to our particular brand of quick-strike trading is to constantly keep your finger on the pulse of the markets and heed the prevailing winds.

Extended Watchlist:

Wrapping Up A Solid Week

Zhuding International Ltd. ZHUD

Earlier this week, on Tuesday and Wednesday mornings, we drew attention to ZHUD via our extended watchlists. The stock started off at a low of .0615 on Tuesday, hitting a high of .09, and the run-up continued through ensuing two sessions.

Yesterday, ZHUD managed a new high of .1145, and that works out to an increase of 86% It marks yet another OTC play that’s produced solid gain opportunities for us recently.

Adobe, Inc. ADBE – Reminder

We wanted to point out that the idea we formulated yesterday morning in the Adobe chain is still very much alive. While the stock didn’t make headway yesterday, we are observing a gap-up this morning in the premarket, and those calls should open up with some very nice profit chances for anyone who snapped them up yesterday.

The targets were the ADBE $397.50-402.50 Calls, so we’ll be watching those as well as adding the $405′s to the equation to track into the close today as we wrap up another trading week.
